My Harvest

Sid23October 6, 2011

Well they are done. This was my first year, I made a lot of mistakes but also learned a lot. Battled drought, powdery mildew, SQUASH BUGS and record early freeze. But it was all worth it, here is my pumpkin and squash harvest.

Wow - excellent harvest! Based upon the number of pumpkins and squash, I never would have guessed this was your first year growing them. Well done!

Thanks radagast, there are about 50 that turned orange, still 15 or so out in the yard deciding what they are going to do. Anything I don't use or sell I will feed to the deer this winter. They loved my squash last winter & I know they love pumpkins. Funny I had to keep them out with an electric fence (oh yeah, another battle) for the summer just so I can feed them in the winter. Ha.

Very, very nice. Those red kuris and buttercups look awesome.
